Don't Frack California!
Last year, under pressure from the oil industry, the California legislature failed to pass a moratorium on fracking. Since then, fracking has continued to expand in California, putting our communities, our water supply and the climate at risk.
Now we have another chance to pass a fracking moratorium bill. State Senators Holly Mitchell and Mark Leno introduced SB 1132, a strong moratorium bill that, if passed, will protect California from fracking and other well stimulation techniques. SB 1132 just got a yes vote at the first committee hearing. The next vote is on April 30.

We have a real opportunity to pass a fracking moratorium in California this year. The oil industry will spend huge amounts of money and political capital fighting this bill. We need your help before the next vote on April 30.
Please sign the petition to urge our California state legislators to vote yes on SB 1132 for a fracking moratorium now.
After signing the petition, please forward this message to your friends in California. You can also share it from the webpage after taking the action yourself.
